Top Ten Suggestions For Improving American Idol
(Topic suggested by DOrr@jam.rr.com)

10. New judges - Eric Idle, Billy Idol and Siegfried Idyll. (HerzogVon@aol.com)

9. Cancel it. And all the other "reality" shows. Fire the network execs... ALL of them. Hire writers with mentalities older than those of average third-graders. Oh, and come up with a frickin' ORIGINAL idea for once! Sheesh! (AutumnEagl@yahoo.com)

8. No Karaoke singers allowed. (discodon2000@aol.com; ldolphin34@hotmail.com)

7. Let the audience throw things. (Airfarcewon@aol.com)

6. Make a huge poster of William Hung. Put a huge red circle with a slash line running diagonally across over it. Hang prominently at the entrance to the theatre that the competition is being held in. (cmndrnineveh@aol.com)

5. Have actual famous singers perform in disguise. Then we'll see how inept the judges really are. (kempter815@cs.com)

4. Nothing says "Your performance was dreadful" more than a steaming bucket of animal excrement dumped on the contestant's head. (razcactus@netzero.com)

3. The eventual winner gets to administer a powerful electric shock to Simon Cowell's withered testicles. (joseph.blevins@verizon.net)

2. Losers have to join a monastery with a vow of silence. (chharget@aol.com)

Might as well go out on a high...or low...or for that matter, a totally missed...note...

1. Make this the last season. (Cantw82paint@Aol.com)
